    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Mission Systems (Saint Cloud, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I met them at a job fair at my college campus. After talking to a representative, I was given a time to interview the following day (reserved room on campus). Panel included two managers, with a new manager-converted engineer.

    College interview, so they requested a transcript of my coursework. They had one copy of my resume, but I was able to give additional copies the day of, so each panel member could have a copy.

    Only one interview, no phone screening. Offer was extended a few weeks later. I found myself asking more questions after the offer was extended, as it seemed to happen faster than I anticipated.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Mission Systems (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was set up through a contracting company. After submitting my resume, I received a phone screening which covered basic programming concepts, noting too in-depth. A few weeks later, I was invited to a half-day interview. While there, I met with probably 8 different people in 4 different meetings. The questions ranged from past work history to whiteboard programming. All interviewers were prepared for their task and I was seldom left waiting for long in between interviewers (some delay is almost inevitable due to variance of how long segments last and the necessity to do business when not interviewing). later that week, I received an offer.

    It's a small thing, but I was frequently offered coffee or water and they validated my parking.

    Interview Questions

    • I received a fairly typical task of exporting a list of files and directories, moving down the directory structure. After I delivered the usual recursive solution, they asked me to continue refining the solution, each time asking me how it changed the complexity or resource usage. The final step was asking me how I would handle it in a multitasking environment.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I had a given salary as I entered in, based on what the contracting company had asked for. They warned me that GD Viz frequently dropped candidates who tried to negotiate for more at the interview.
